Sleeping next to a modem?

  1. Jun 3, 2013 #1
    Is there scientific evidence that sleeping next to a wireless modem is harmful? What is the minimum safe distance? Would you sleep next to a wireless modem? I am very worried that sleeping next to a modem can be harmful. I live in a very small appartment, and dont have many choices. Please help.

    I wouldn't worry about it. The frequencies a modem outputs are not dangerous unless the power level is extremely high (much higher than any wifi ap would ever output).
